Hibs Lift Scottish Premier Cup 

Hibernian were 5-2 winners over Spartans at Alloa last night, in the Scottish Premier League Cup Final.  Hibs had gone behind just 3 minutes in as Hayley nipped in to head past keeper Shannon Lynn.  Debbie McWhinnie was denied an equaliser when keeper Jo Hutcheson turned her drive onto the bar but Hibs then devastated Spartans with four goals in a ten-minute spell.

The scores were levelled on 23 minutes as Jenna Ross headed home Claire Emslie's cross on 23 minutes. McWhinnie was then involved in all the three goals that swiftly followed, sending in crosses for Hollie Thomson and Leanne Crichton to nod home and combining with Ross who volleyed in.

Kirsty McLaughlin reduced the arrears to 4-2 from the edge of the box on 67 minutes but shortly after, Ross set up McWhinnie who scored with a deflected effort.
